Veteran hunter who won at Perth (3m, good) last May and was a close second at Hexham (3m, heavy) on his comeback last month; should run his race again but this is a tough assignment on adjusted figures.

Veteran hunter who won at Perth (3m, good) and was runner-up at Kelso (3m2f, good to firm) last May; has won on soft, but best efforts on quicker ground so today's conditions not ideal.

Form & Verdict

6yo who has run some fair races this year and was second in a maiden hunter chase at Hexham (3m, good) on Saturday; however, he finished tired and more will be required to win this contest.

Placed over hurdles in 2022; returned from long absence with two very disappointing hurdle runs during the winter but seemed to have turned a corner when clear second in maiden point at Overton (soft) last month.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent and soundly beaten in a point-to-point last month; however, he won one in March (3m, good to soft) and was also on the scoresheet in a hunter chase at Kelso (2m7f, soft) in January; capable of a bold show.

Made winning stable debut in hunter chase at Kelso (2m7f, soft) in January; he could have more to offer for this yard but is in a much tougher race this afternoon and may well prove vulnerable.

Modest 2-31 strike-rate under rules but didn't run badly last spring on final two starts for Eugene O'Sullivan and he'll be tough to beat if reproducing that sort of form on stable debut; bought for £21,000 last May.

Form: /P/2-U

Last run: 12 days

W: 11st 12lb

9 yo Gelding

OR: 89

Form & Verdict

0-8 under rules but has posted a win (3m, heavy) and a near-miss (3m, good) in point-to-points this year, and has also shown promise in hunter chases; this is a realistic opportunity and he could have a big say.

Respectable third at Leicester (2m4f, heavy) on hunter chase debut in February and also ran well when close second to a subsequent bumper winner in restricted point at Flete Park last month but others in this line-up look stronger.

Had some ordinary form in bumpers, over hurdles and in his early points before making all to beat two rivals in a hunt members' race in January; could come on for that win but has much to prove at this level.
